A former Walsall loanee has been told he can leave his current club in search of first-team football.
Max Melbourn allowed to leave Lincoln City.
Lincoln City are reported to have informed former Walsall loanee Max Melbourne that he can leave the club if an opportunity to secure regular first-team football arises elsewhere.

Melbourne, who is joined by midfielder Zack Elbouzedi in being allowed out either on loan or pernanently by the Sincil Bank side, spent the second half of last season on loan at the Banks's making twenty first-team appearances.

As the League One Imps appear to have plenty of competition for places in defence, and manager Michael Appleton is looking to bring width-providing attacking players, Max will struggle for first-team outings.

Speaking to 'Lincolnshire Live' Appleton revealed he has held talks with both Melbourne and former Bolton Wanderers loanee Elbouzedi and insisted he won’t stand in their way if they wish to move on to pastures new.

The manager said; "I’ve had a couple of conversations with them before they left about how important it is to be playing and how, as a club, we want to improve and get better and better.
 
"The honest conversations I’ve had with those players are that if there is an opportunity to get regular football, whether that’s going out on loan or a permanent move, then that’s something both parties will try and make happen.
 
"I don’t want to have them here if I’m not going to use them that much. It’s not my style, I’d rather have a difficult conversation with someone and say ‘go and play regularly, continue your career and keep developing rather than standing still."
